Internationally Loved, Locally Tolerated
Izzi Tooinsky, The King of Hotdogastan, is a unique vaudevillian entertainer who has been performing at fairs, festivals, schools, and museums since the dawn of time. The King of Hotdogastan is a juggler, clown, comedian, storyteller, and educator. He is the author of two books, creator of 7 storytelling CD’s, father of two wild women and has performed in 17 countries around the world.
The Australian Sydney Morning Herald said of Izzi,
“Where ever this man performs, the stage explodes with fun, joy, and unbounded creativity.”
National Public Radio called him a “Wonderful, wandering, wizard of wisdom.”
His neighbor Barry called him “A bald headed loafer.”
But all of the above agree that The King of Hotdogastan’s performance is bold and creative, flamboyant and fun for people of all ages. His quick mix of comedy, juggling and audience participation makes him a favorite everywhere from The International Children’s Festival in Wales to the wild desert extravaganza of Burning Man.
“Izzi is dynamic, charming, and hilarious. You will not find a more genuine, sincere, and entertaining Storyteller.”
